Microbial Growth Inside Your Home

After a slow leak, this fungi grew through the carpet in a house in Tuscaloosa, AL Carpet fungi growing from a slow water leak, over time.

Most organic life naturally grows outdoors. SERVPRO of Tuscaloosa has come across fungi growth indoors when a water leak has gone unnoticed. The most common we have seen at SERVPRO Tuscaloosa is a slow leak in the walls. It may be behind furniture or not affected the drywall and only soaked into the carpet and padding. Depending on the portion of the carpet and the access for cleaning, the water saturation could go unnoticed. Fungi will not always grow out of saturated carpeting, but if the conditions are right it can be a possibility.  This is much easier to remediate the fungi, but you must remove all your carpeting and find that leak! Call SERVPRO of Tuscaloosa at 205.553.8377 to start your remediation process. We are faster to any kind of disaster.
